You will receive prior notification of the meeting and the invited participants.
Will you define least restrictive environment (LRE)?
How often will we meet to develop an Individual Education Program (IEP) for my child?

How do I request an Individual Education Program review?
A parent/guardian may request an Individual Education Program review at any time when he/she has new information that the Individual Education Program Committee could consider.
Who do I contact to request an Individual Education Program review?
A parent/guardian should contact his/her student's teacher by phone or in writing.
Should my child attend the Individual Education Program review?
